just learning that new jersey governor chris christie has signed an executive order implementing odd/even rationing for gas purchases in 12 new jersey counties. the human toll, meantime, it is growing. at least 22 people have now lost their lives here. the least populated of new york's five boroughs and the highest death toll. for staten islanders, especially, the idea of a global sports and media spectacle being held on their shattered doorstep, it was infuriating and understandably so. today, new york mayor michael bloomberg who had been pushing for the race backed down, saying the marathon had become a course of controversy and division. the thousands of runners from around the world are already here. minutes after the decision we sent our producers to central park to get reactions from runners. some were surprised to get the news. >> you are sure? >> reporter: i'm sure. >> oh, my god. >> we are from germany. we prepared for over a year for this run. that is bad, totally bad. >> what can we do? keep on running. >> we will come back next year. we will come back next year. okay? >>

some heavy flooding as well. >> as you know, governor chris christie was very critical of the mayor of atlantic city for basically going against his instructions, apparently telling people to shelter in place. has the mayor responded to governor christie's really blistering words for him? >> reporter: no. the mayor was talking to us earlier before this happened and at that point, i asked him, i said mayor, what do you do for those people who haven't left because we had come in from the west and the roads were starting to become overwashed. my concern was that it would be dangerous if at that point we were starting to see people leave. just then i saw a pickup truck with a family in the back, two young children, they were being helped to safety and the mayor said at that point, if you're not out now, stay in. the governor got very annoyed by that. i have to say, i don't know enough to get involved in the battle between the two of them on this particular topic, it was looking a little precarious at that point. it's quite presecarious now. no chance you could leave if you wanted to. at

conversation you had with the mayor. he had sharp words for chris christie who had sharp words for him earlier in the evening whether or not people should have left or stayed as it got worse in atlantic city. but i have to tell you, since 3:00 this afternoon, it got pretty dicey about people leaving. they were told if they hadn't left yet, get to high ground or stay in your houses. unless it's something you need 911 for, don't call. we're not going to get to you until morning. utility crews around here, as i said, we did see a transformer blow. this area we're in right now has no electricity. it went out a few hours ago. you can see behind me, you can still see the boardwalk lit up. the grid on that side is working. chad can tell you, the wind has picked up here quite a bit in the last half hour, anderson. >> about how far are you from the boardwalk right now, ali? >> if you can see the lights behind me, the traffic lights, the red lights -- hold on. the traffic lights behind me, probably 3/4 of a mile. that's the end of the road. that's where the hotels are. caesar's is right there an

asking for those resources. >> you had quite a dust-up with the governor of your state, chris christie. he basically accused you of ignoring state-issued evacuation orders, criticizing you for telling people to take shelter in place as a last resort. what do you make of that? earlier, you said governor christie should call you and be man enough to own up to what you said is his mischaracterization of what you'd advised residents. have you heard anything from him? >> i have not. i expect at some point tomorrow our paths will cross. listen, what's important is to make sure that all of us, the governor, the mayor, and every elected official, make sure we keep what's really important first and foremost, and that's the safety of the constituents that we serve. anything personal between the governor and i, i look beyond that. i'm more magnanimous than that. i'm not about personalities, i'm about principle. we have a job to do, and from that side that's exactly what i'm going to do. >> mayor langford, i know it's been an extraordinary 26-plus hours for you. i appreciate your time. we'll continue

information you can, however you get the information. governor chris christie today described the information at the jersey shore as unthinkable. that's the word he used. it's certainly true. hard to wrap your brain around pictures like these from the national guard. look at that. that's the coastline of seaside heights. houses buried in the sand. sand washed into homes at least 100 yards from the normal high tide line. i spoke with seaside heights mayor, bill acre. what are you contending with tonight? what is the number one priority right now? >> right now, we're just trying to get through the evening. we're trying to secure some diesel fuel to keep the police station running and the borough hall, which is the only building that has the power through the generator right now. we're trying to get over 100 gallons of fuel from the oem right now. that's what we're doing at the time. >> do you -- the pictures are just horrific to look at. do you have any sense of the scope of the destruction? >> i -- i'm glad you have a picture, because if you don't see it, you can't fully understand
